11:29, ‘For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.’ Damn or damnation simply means to check or stop the ‘going on’ or procedure.
Cor. 11:30, ‘For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.’
Acts I, ‘Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you, into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.’
II John, 7th verse, “He that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh, the same is Anti-Christ.”
John 3:3, ‘Jesus answered and said unto him, verily, verily I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of heaven.’
1st John 3:9, ‘Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin, for his seed remaineth in him, and he cannot sin because he is born of God.’
Peter 1:23, ‘Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the WORD OF GOD, which liveth and abideth forever.’
Luke 4:4, ‘And Jesus answered him, saying, it is written that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every WORD of God.’
Galatians 3:16, ‘Now to Abraham and his seed were these promises made, and to thy seed which is Christ.’
Luke 8:11, ‘Now the parable is this; the seed is the WORD OF GOD.’
Colossians 1:26-27, ‘Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and generations, but now is made manifest to his saints. To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is CHRIST IN YOU, THE HOPE OF GLORY.’
Deut. 28:38, ‘Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and thou shalt gather but little in; for the locust shall consume it.’ Eating, devouring or gluttony. (See John the Baptist.)”
